Fabien Potencier has continued his post series covering the next major release of the Symfony framework, Symfony 4. In this latest post he walks you through a quick demonstration of the creation of a new Symfony 4 application including a simple administration system.
Time to test Symfony 4... or at least let's test the experience of developing Symfony 4 projects with Symfony 3.3. Keep in mind that all the tools are in preview mode. Features might evolve over time. I'm waiting for your feedback! The first stable version of Symfony Flex will not be released before Symfony 4 at the end of November 2017. It gives the community plenty of time to discuss the changes I have described in this series of blog posts.
He then walks through the process for creating the application:
- Using Composer's "create-project" to make a new skeleton application
- Setting it up as a git repository
- Defining environment variables
- Registering the framework bundle
- Installing the command line tools
With the basic application set up he then shows how to install the EasyAdminBundle to create the simple administrative interface. He's also created a screencast showing this same process so you can see it all in action.
